CNN in Davos for special business coverage

MUMBAI: The World Economic Forum returns to Davos for its annual gathering next week, and CNN International will be reporting live throughout this key event in the business calendar.


With recovery from the 2008 financial crisis beginning to gather pace, this year’s event focuses on the role economics has to play in the reshaping of global society.


From Monday January 20 to Friday January 24, CNN business correspondents Richard Quest, Nina dos Santos and John Defterios, alongside Fareed Zakaria, will deliver live daily coverage from the heart of the Swiss mountain town, which is transformed each year for the summit.


With unique access to CEOs, financiers and world leaders, CNN will be posing tough questions on topics from youth unemployment to corporate responsibility, as well as asking whether the current model for global capitalism is fit for purpose.


Mike McCarthy, Senior Vice President, Programming, at CNN International, said: “Our coverage of Davos marks the start of a big year for business on CNN, both on TV and online. Our commitment to the World Economic Forum is as strong as ever, and our anchors have unrivalled experience in covering this key event on the economic calendar.”
